Another heart, another vase, but with a twist.
Give something presented in this "thing" and offer your heart forever(ish).

I bet some strategic placement of ABS Juice (if ABS printed) or something similar would resolve that matter.
Thank you too, feel free to upload the photos.

Scale to suit.
Print (in red or paint it red).
Give as gift.
Feel the love.

EDIT: Print with zero infill, 1+ perimeters, and a few solid layers for the base. Either delete the last few layers of code or stop the print before it starts bridging the top, or cut off the solid layers after the print.

With Slic3r 9.4 you can choose how many top solid layers you want. You want 0.

I have also uploaded a shelled out (hollow opened topped) version of the vase with a 1mm wall thickness in case you prefer to programme that one instead.

Two Hi-Res stls also uploaded due to the quality of your prints being too good.
woww ! i printede and its very nice !
thanks a lot !
Thank you too, feel free to upload the photos.

I made one, but it leaks!

Thanks gyrobot,
vase works perfekt and looks great with rostock3d, abs and Kisslicer...
I'm happy you are pleased with it, pictures are always welcome.
Nice! I made one scaled 70%, printed on ReprapPro Huxley
Thank you! Quite a beautiful model; it made my wife very happy. About 1.5hrs on a replicator 2, PLA, fine, 23g. Does not hold water. I am considering creating a derivation with thicker walls to do so. Making another one for myself in white to be a fabulous writing utensil holder.
Hi, you should be able to make the walls as thick as you want using the solid stl file, use no infill and as many perimeter shells as you care to lay down. Check out the love and kisses vase (thing 42951) to make your wife even happier ;-)

Glad you and your wife liked it.
Turned out quite well. It was printing as a solid, so I set the infill to 0% and 3 shells for a thick wall. Also, stop it before it does the top unless you want to seal the vase up since the stl file is a complete solid.
Cheers for the print picture, looking great, I have expanded the print instructions to suit your comments.
Why is everything in your pictures looking so perfect?

How can the prints be so smooth, also the tape on the platform is in perfect shape. How is this even possible? I hate you !
These platform photos must be photoshopped.
It's quite obvious that this is a picture of his print bed, with a 3D model fully rendered with shadows, etc on top. He probably didn't even need to use photoshop.
Spot on thantik, modelled and rendered in CAD with a photo of my Orca printbed in the background. I am waiting for some red PLA before I print this vase hence on this occasion I have no photo of it yet. Check out my other designs for "actual" print quality.
